Bill Rose is documentary photographer who strives to capture and preserve the increasingly endangered beauty of American vintage signs through his work. The main focus of his Recapturist collection is the Google-inspired neon signage favored by many local businesses during the mid-1900s. Although this Mid-Century Modern architectural movement originated in Southern California, its influence can be found in almost every corner of the Unites States.
